They're shooting 54% from the field and 45% from three... and Turner is 7/9 and 18 points.

Their defense is atrocious, but they're hitting their shots.
True, but mostly because they're getting a nonstop parade of open shots.

I don't understand what the Celtics are trying to do on offense, nobody is moving at all.

53.8% from three! Maybe try a different defensive strategy. As good as we are on offense, we should just force teams to take twos. No one can put score us that way.

Celtics should not be getting outrebounded. That's the stat that really stands out to me.

Obviously, the Pacers' shooting and assist numbers are huge, but rebounding is about effort.

Probably not sustainable for either team to give up 30+ every quarter. Lock in the D, boys.

Why?

You think this Indy team is gonna lose by 20 every game? They had the second best offense ever.
JFC. I’m allowed to be stunned that they torpedoed a 10+ point lead in minutes and torched our D after we seemingly had them locked down early.

NOT EVERYTHING IS A NARRATIVE

Good wake up call. Started the globetrotter shit with the big lead then Joe played a regular season lineup and got regular season effort against a team that has been gutting it out the last week.

Celtics offense got gummed up a lot in second quarter—-one on one stuff, not a lot of movement.

I’d say about half of Indiana success is great movement and passing from them and half is shaky defense - especially the Kornet minutes.

Celts need to refocus on both ends. These guys can shoot if we just let it become a 3 pt competition

Pacers are hitting 50+ from 3 compared to our 31 and still a tie game. Could have been worse.
